Earth awaits longest blood moon

The longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st Century will occur this weekend turning the moon red, but it is not visible in the Northern Hemisphere. The total lunar eclipse is projected to last for an hour and 42 minutes, with the entire event lasting over 6 hours. The moon will appear reddish and not black because some of the sun's light gets bent around earth's edge and falls on the moon. According to them, atmosphere on the Moon might have been far more habitable than it is today after a meteorite blast.

At the same time, Mars is travelling closer to Earth than it has done since 2003, so some observers may see what looks like an orange-red star - and is in fact the red planet. "Astrology is not something we follow".

Mars, however, will appear brightest from July 27 to July 30, the space agency says.

When Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon's surface in July 1969, it was not only a giant leap for mankind, but also the first time the satellite had ever hosted life. It will last for 103 minutes, making it the longest eclipse of the 21st century.

He said: "The thunderstorms will be quite widespread but not necessarily close together and it's going to be down to fortune whether people in certain locations are able to see this astronomical spectacle".

Just after 8am on Saturday, some Kiwis will have what could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness a rare celestial event: The Sun and an eclipsed Moon in the sky at the same time. The total eclipse will commence at 1:00 am on July 28 and terminates by 2:43 am on July 28.

A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon moves into the Earth's shadow.

"There is no reason to believe that blood moons foretell doom", said Massey. The eclipse will be mainly visible in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia, as well as some parts of South America.

Unlike with a solar eclipse, it is safe to look at without special glasses. A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the Umbral region of the Earth's shadow and becomes imperceptible.

The moon travels to a similar position every month, but the tilt of its orbit means it normally passes above or below the Earth's shadow - so most months we have a full moon without an eclipse.

The astronomy expert told Express.co.uk: "Although the moon is in the shadow of the Earth, that is no direct sunlight is expected to hit the moon, the sun illuminates the Earth's atmosphere and that causes some of the sunlight to be scattered in the direction of the moon". "But the best time to view it is several hours after sunset, when Mars will appear higher in the sky", NASA said in a skywatching video. "Less dark eclipses may show the moon as dark grey or brown ... as rust-colored, brick-red, or, if very bright, copper-red or orange".
